Cartoon tools

Just as oil painters use painting oil, oil paints, and special brushes, and Japanese painters use glue and rock paints, manga painters also use a number of special tools.

However, the types of tools differ greatly between digital production and analog production.

There is also a bias in the tools used by some people. Therefore, in this article, I will first introduce the cartoon tools that are widely and commonly used by analog makers.

Analog production tools

A tool commonly used in analog production is a tool called a tone.

This is a tool used to save time and manpower, such as backgrounds, shadows, fills and textures, which can be time consuming to write each time by hand. There are various things from simple wood grain to landscape.
